Industrial Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments provide for the control of contamination of air and, if appropriate, surfaces, to levels appropriate for accomplishing contamination-sensitive activities.
Contamination control can be beneficial for protection of product or process integrity in applications in industries such as aerospace, microelectronics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, healthcare and food. Furthermore, it extends its application s in new material development and fine chemical Industry.
A clean room is an environment, typically used in manufacturing or scientific research that has a low level of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosols particles and chemical vapors. More accurately, a clean room has a controlled level of contamination that is specified by the number of particles per cubic meter at a specified particle size.
As per the regulations specified by regulating authority FOOD & DRUG ADMINISTRATION, it is necessary to implement specified norms for all pharmaceutical & food industries. For this reason, the air conditioning and ventilation system in the pharmaceutical industry is one of the most vital elements in the manufacturing process.
The working area is sensitive to airborne contamination which is why it is necessary to provide adequate protection from ingress of pollutants. The manufacturing process itself also generates fumes that need to be exhausted from the plant to prevent the contamination of areas in which the production takes place. Only the familiarity with all the specificities of the pharmaceutical industry guarantees successful designing and manufacturing of optimal HVAC solution.
One of the industrial clean room criteria is that, its employment will get the investment capital returned with the improvement of quality and production yield of the products. In short, the investment for industrial clean room is profitable. What level of clean room is necessary for what kind of products is determine by the product requirement. It is important to design the higher clean room for more important production area and lower and economical clean room for other areas.
